During the talk we will hear about:

• Getting There: Survival Training & Transit—Training and preparation for the combat tour
• A Bit about Kit—’60’s Style—The F-4 aircraft, weapons (ours and theirs); personal equipment
• Mission Profiles—Descriptions of types of mission flown

• And a touch of humour throughout
